Scotland's Jesus: The Only Officially Non-racist Comedian | [Frankie Boyle]

Scotland's Jesus: The Only Officially Non-racist Comedian

Reading Scotland's Jesus should be like being called into the living room by your child shouting that they see a little red dot on the head of a TV newscaster, then riding the white hot bullet through the propaganda circuitry of his or her exploding brain. It's a funny book about the news, partly because it was decided that a pornographic book about Scottish Independence wouldn't really sell.

Publisher's Summary

Reading Scotland's Jesus should be like being called into the living room by your child shouting that they see a little red dot on the head of a TV newscaster, then riding the white hot bullet through the propaganda circuitry of his or her exploding brain.It's a funny book about the news, partly because it was decided that a pornographic book about Scottish Independence wouldn't really sell.

In chapters ranging from International Politics to the Animal World, Scotland's Jesus is allowed the opportunity to showcase his increasingly unsympathetic worldview and disintegrating psyche. A torrent of jokes about recent events provide the framework for a broader philosophical despair. Frankie Boyle uses the stories of the popular press as a springboard to explain the nature of reality and the details of our enslavement to mirthless corporate Warlocks.

    Story
    "Clever man but too crude for my liking."

    Anyone who likes Frankie Boyle's stand up and TV appearances will enjoy this. He is always honest and witty. But I find the constant wish to shock the listener a bit tedious and over the top. I got bored about half way through and found I wasn't really listening anymore. No subject is off limits which is fine but I will avoid his stuff in future as it didn't appeal to me. If you are a fan already then this book won't let you down.

    "Really dull"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I just dont know who the audience is for this.


    Has Scotland's Jesus: The Only Officially Non-racist Comedian put you off other books in this genre?

    no


    Would you be willing to try another one of Angus King’s performances?

    no


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Dissapointment, the book was very cheap so worth a punt. I assumed it was a biography continuation, it is simply the jokes that arent that great read out in a kind of running dialouge. I love Frankie and have seen him live many times in clubs, i feel bad but despite perseverance i couldnt get past chapter 5.


    Any additional comments?

    I think if this was read by Frankie it would have been better, i can understand why he doesnt do this however. Angus King sounds fine theres just something not right about someones comedy material being read out by another, it doesnt fit.

    I am glad I didn't buy the printed version and be responsible for taking part in wasting valuable ink and paper resources, the audio book would be great for an insomniac, Sorry Frankie you are just not funny

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Highly recommended for the open minded.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Frankie Boyle for his intelligent humour and his 'don't let them get you down' attitude.


    What about Angus King’s performance did you like?

    Very similar sounding to Frankie Boyle.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The introduction.


    Any additional comments?

    If your on the right of politics you should read it and if your left of centre watch them read it.
